Your SAP Status

Meeting

You are in good shape and in good standing. Keep up the good work! To remain in good standing you must complete 83% of your unit obligation each semester. Obligation is generally 12 units (6 units if student is only receiving a loan). Undergraduate and credential students who are full-time would need to complete a minimum of 10 units to remain in good standing.

Warning

If you complete less than 83% of your unit obligation, you are placed on “warning” for one semester and sent a warning letter outlining what you must do to return to good standing during the subsequent semester of enrollment. In order to regain a good standing status, you must complete 83% of your unit obligation in your warning term. If you complete less than 83% of your unit obligation for a second term consecutively, you have lost your eligibility for financial aid.

Probation

You have submitted an appeal and a one-time exception has been granted. You must complete 83% of your unit obligation in your probationary term in order to regain good standing status. If you complete less than 83% of your unit obligation for a second term consecutively, you have lost your financial aid eligibility again.

Not Meets

You have a Financial Aid Suspension. Students unable to meet the SAP standards during their Warning semester are placed on financial aid suspension. Additionally, students who do not earn their degree within the maximum timeframe to completion are ineligible for additional financial aid. No aid will be disbursed during subsequent semesters of enrollment unless the student has made an appeal and the appeal is granted. There are no exceptions to this requirement. If you were previously awarded financial aid, your aid will be cancelled. Due to lack of funds, most programs generally cannot be reinstated after cancellation. Please review the section on how to regain your eligibility.

Pending

The Financial Aid Office is currently reviewing your file, additional documents may be necessary to complete this review. Make sure to check your email for communication from our office and your Student Center’s To-Do-List for additional documents needed. Your SAP status will be updated to reflect the appropriate status once the review process has been completed.

Undetermined

If you are a new HSU student your SAP status has not yet been determined because you have not yet completed your first term at HSU. This process runs after every term once grades are posted. Your SAP status will be updated upon completion of your first term at HSU.
